  1. I’ve seen every episode of One Step Beyond, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and basically every other similar show. Never even heard of Thriller until today and I’m happy I found it!

  2. I must say, that I totally agree with everyone in this comment section!!! It is so refreshing to share the same love of ( real ) classic movies instead of the 🗑 garbage that is plastered all over the movie 🎥 screens 📺 indeed.

  3. The score for this episode was fantastic. Henry Daniell & Thatcher were in Brando's Mutiny on the Bounty. Daniell and Karloff also starred in the Body Snatcher. Daniell also had a tiny role in another Thriller episode.

  4. Thank you for sharing these. The old thriller/horror movies and TV shows had a style they just can't replicate. There are some real gems in these old programs.

  5. Btw, if the big guy looks familiar, that's Richard Kiel who played Jaws in the James bond flicks: 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and 'Moonraker'‼️😎🇺🇸

  6. I once met Richard Kiel. He was in a wheelchair and was selling autographed 8×10 glossies of himself. 35$ a pop. It was at a Flea Market in San Francisco, 2013. I think he's died since then.
